The American University of Armenia accepts applications from students looking to enter their first year of University and from students who intend to transfer from other universities to continue their studies at AUA.

AUA practices holistic admissions – we are looking for students who succeed on and off campus. At AUA, the decision to offer a student admission is never based on just one factor. We always look at academic credentials, exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer activities, and more.

Academic Programs

AUA offers four year undergraduate degrees in Business, English & Communications, Politics & Governance, Computer Science, Data Science, Engineering Sciences, Environmental and Sustainability Sciences, and 30 months in Nursing. All programs are offered as part of a liberal arts education to assure that graduates are specialists and well-rounded individuals who can think critically and creatively, learn independently, understand different thought processes, work collaboratively, and communicate effectively with people from different cultures and disciplines.

Selection Process and the AUA Student Profile

AUA practices holistic admissions. We select students who have the skills and ability to succeed in their studies and to assure that AUA is well-suited to their educational and career goals. Once the applicant submits an undergraduate application, it is screened for technical eligibility. If eligible, the Undergraduate Admissions Committee (UAC) will thoroughly review the application. The applicant will receive an email notification of his/her admission status up to 10 weeks after the admission deadline date.

As admission to AUA is competitive, the committee will consider academic and personal information, including educational background, official entrance exam scores, extracurricular and volunteer experience, essays, and an interview, if applicable.
